Houston hip-hop trailblazer blasts the genre off to a new galaxy seven-minute plus roller coaster.
Travi$ Scott just went and made hip-hop totally epic with his latest track "3500" [feat. 2 Chainz & Future]. Not only does it perfectly set the foundation for the impending release of his anxiously awaited major label debut, Rodeo [Epic], but it truly ushers rap forward. Stretching past the seven-minute mark, the Houston native takes the genre to a new place altogether and he draws impressive cameos out of both 2 Chainz and Future along the way. Over that entire time, he keeps things very interesting, consistently surprising the listener between airy and entrancing bars of his own and that big booming hook, "Thirty-five hundred for the coat." You could hear this chanted in the club, or you could totally zone out on headphones and just drift off to it. It's that dynamic that makes "3500" a classic straight out of the gate. If you haven't heard Travi$, it's a fitting gateway into his wonderfully warped and wild world.
"3500" hints at what's to come on Rodeo. Make no mistake about it. This album is going to be on par with Kanye West's Yeezus and Kid Cudi's Man on the Moon: The End of Day as far as significance and shifting the game. Fans already know it. They eat up videos for the likes of "Mamacita" [feat. Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan] and all of the other unforgettable visuals that Travi$ has delivered thus far. "3500" signals his biggest and best moment is on the horizon with Rodeo though.
"3500" from Travi$ Scott featuring Future & 2 Chainz is available now via Epic Records.
